Kathy was my best friend in college. We were prayer partners and spent much time memorizing scripture and praying together. We loved to sing and spent hours at the piano in the BSC. Kathy was my maid of honor at my wedding. I have so many memories of her and am so thankful God put her in my life. I'm sad for those of us here but rejoicing in her home going. I am praying for David and Sam and her family.

I’m sorry to hear of Kathy’s passing. I remember her from our high school days at Crab Orchard. She was 1 of many upper class students that I looked up to. Her singing voice was angelic. My sincerest condolences to the entire GLASCO family and to Kathy’s immediate family….

I have known Katherine for a very long time.

She was an amazing woman. She was a loving wife and mother. Sam was the light of
her life!

Katherine had many talents that brought joy to so many people.

I was so appreciative of Katherine's love of music, gardening, and priority of sharing time with family and friends.

Her laughter and humor brought much happiness to myself and many others.

Katherine's faith was what sustained her. I am very blessed to call her friend! ❤

Katherine was a dear friend for many years in my life.. I feel so blessed to have had her in my life.. She was a true example of the love of Jesus. So gifted and talented.. I would love to hear her voice and even be able to sing with her on occasions. I loved that she loved the outdoors and gardening. I have had so many laughs and so many precious memories with my special friend and sister in the Lord. She will be deeply missed.. Prayers for her dear family that I have always loved so much.. She is now rejoicing round the throne.
